Orange and Aethra® Telecommunications test FTTdp in Warsaw

ANCONA, Italy and WARSAW, Poland, February 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Orange Polska is currently working with Aethra® Telecommunications to test the possibilities offered by the Fiber-to-the-Distribution-Point (FTTdp) technology.

The FTTdp architecture is based on the concept of using the last tens of meters of copper to overcome the issues related to fiber cabling inside existing buildings, giving the operators lower costs and guaranteed deployment times.

Fiber is cabled up to the basement / floor of the building, where single user GPON to VDSL2 nodes are installed; the FTTdp nodes are then "reverse powered" over the same copper pairs used for data, thanks to a power supply connected in the home of the customer.

FTTdp will give to Orange Polska customers the same triple play experience and services offered to FTTH customers, with 200Mbps download speeds, voice and IPTV.

Lab tests were finalized in December and field trial in Warsaw started early January will take several months.

Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
